Board Adopts New Mission Statements

December 18, 2018

It is after several meetings and thoughtful deliberation that the i-SIGMA Board of Directors is pleased to announce that it has formed a mission statement for the association to reflect its role as an umbrella organization for specialized information management disciplines. The Board also approved a new mission statement for NAID.

The new i-SIGMA mission statement: To advance secure data life-cycle management, security, and information governance globally by service providers and their customers through advocacy, education, and standards enforcement.

The new NAID mission statement: To champion the protection of personally identifiable information, intellectual property, as well as regulatory compliance through the secure disposition of information and media in all forms by promoting customer best-practices using qualified service providers.

“The mission statement of any organization serves as the filter by which the Board determines the merits of its efforts,” say i-SIGMA Co-President Christopher Jones. “As a result, it deserves considerable thought and a broad consensus. It wasn’t easy, but we are confident we hit the mark.”

The new mission follows the heart of the old NAID mission but clearly defines the path forward. NAID has always had its focus on data protection, regulatory compliance, and best practices. Now it is in writing to lead the division forward in one accord.
